Weekend with Britt!

So our cousin Brittany came out to visit for the weekend. She came to cut Kate's hair but Kate claims we never tell her anything(which somehow is always the truth, not sure how we always forget :-)), so Kate made plans to go to Nashville to see Phil. So Britt drove 2 1/2 hours just to see us! We made sure to show her a good time so she wasn't regretting the drive. :-) We went to Swingers for dinner and then to Six String to country line dance and then to Daddios to hear Sixteen Candles.

These are pretty much typical looks out of both of them! :-)

Ok, now they're just faking! haha

Britt, me, Shannon and Denise, Denise is just trying to show off that she's ready for spring break already with her base tan! :-)

Same picture, just add Ty's thumb. Britt is a little nervous about it being near her! haha

I should have known he was up to something!

Love this guy! He's like my little brother!

She had a 55 calorie beer. I think she had the right idea with Diet Coke. Watered down beer.....yuck! Beer in general.....yuck! :-)

Whit is not suffering from dandruff. It was just really snowy outside! :-)

Whit showing her true feelings for having to listen to country music!

The snow on her head still hasn't quite melted!

Not sure what it is about this picture, but Whit creeps me out! haha

Tyler taught Shannon and I the Texas two step, and that would be Whit's nose in the bottom right hand corner! :-)

So we've been out together two times and Brian wore this exact outfit both times. I think its his go to clubbing outfit! haha

I've been told if you put your hand on your hip, your arm looks smaller. Come on, all the kids are doing it these days! :-)

Six String was lame and there was no line dancing so we went to Daddios to hear Sixteen Candles. They were kind of lame too! haha However, we did get this pic, which is now one of my favorites of us because Brian is actually fully smiling! :-)

Brian likes this one better because it shows off what he calls his "guns"! haha

Ok, I'll give you one try, which one is Brian? :-) My parents can't even tell them apart!

They gave us free hats! We are totally natural gangstas! haha

Not sure what Jeff is doing, but it looks like his tongue is getting sucked into that bottle! haha

Apparently I wasn't in agreement with what Brent was saying! :-)

This would be compliments of Britt!

Britt was trying to get a picture of Brian's track jacket tied around his waist. She asked him if he was going on a field trip! haha

Brian whispering sweet nothings in Jeff's ear and he's clearly not comfortable with it! haha

Yeah, don't know!

Brent told Britt he's not very photogenic........she said, I can tell! haha

Ok, why did I have to ruin it?

Brent showing off his new western wear shirt. I think he looks goooooood and hopefully Brian can borrow it sometime! haha

Britt was hamming it up on the dance floor!

My Very First Valentine's Date EVER!!!

So Brian and I have been dating for about 7 months now and I was very much looking forward to my first Valentine's date E-V-E-R! You see in the past, I've started dating someone in January. Note to self, never start dating someone in January, because either 1) there's a lot of pressure for that first Valentine's day, what to do, what to say, how much to do, etc or 2) they break up with you right before Valentine's Day or in my case on the day of. I just don't recommend it. Start dating February 15th or later! haha

So anyway, this year I was excited. I told Brian that if he was going to break up with me, just do it and get it over with because I'm used to it by now, but he was pretty sure he still wanted to date me through this dreaded holiday! haha So about a week before we got to talking about Valentine's gifts. Brian was like gifts? I didn't know I had to get you a gift. I said, well I got you one. He was like, no no no.....why would you get me a gift? I said, well I love buying gifts for people and holidays just gives me an excuse! :-) He's like, I've never bought a Valentine's gift. I said, well what did you get for your last girlfriend. He said, flowers, but you don't like flowers. I said, you're right, try again. He was like, well I was just going to get you one of those big hershey kisses. I said, that's a good start but don't stop there. :-) He said, that's where I was planning on stopping. He said, you have my love and devotion. That should be enough. I said, actually you haven't said I love you, so really I just have your devotion at this point! He was like, well that should be enough. I said, well I want a gift! haha I said, it's my first Valentine's Day. I want it to be special. So I gave him some ideas that he was mentally taking down.

We decided to go to Jonah's Seafood house in Peoria. Brian isn't exactly a planner so I help him out a little and make the reservations so we actually have places to go on special occasions! haha We got there and they sat us by the window. He said, I love where were sitting! Do you think this is because of Valentine's Day? I said, no probably because I set up this reservation like a month ago! haha

We had a great time! My fish unfortunately was almost cold when it came out, so I didn't eat much so we decided to take it home. I however quickly dumped it down Brian's leg as we walked out of the restaurant. I had to laugh at his shocked face as he was still holding the to go container in his hand and it was hanging open with the potatoes fully intact and my fish laying on the ground. :-)

Brian would kill me if he knew I posted this. He made me take other photos after we left so he could Facebook approve them! :-)

We couldn't get the full sign in the picture, so we settled for it at least saying Oyster Bar above our heads! :-)

I like this one, but.......

Brian likes this one. Apparently, he likes more of his face showing! :-)

He doesn't think he takes good photos, so he made me take pictures of him till we got a good one. After about 6 tries, this is what we came up with. Oh my Valentine! haha
